Pauly,
There is a segment discussing this in the documetary video "Anthem to Beauty". Bobby's request for thick air on the studio album drove the producer nuts to the point where he quit the project. Funny stuff!! Find the video if you can, it was pretty interesting to watch.

Classic Bobby...it seems half joking and fully serious at the same time.

Actually I think that's where I learned about this so-called "thick air" quest by Bobby and the boys. It was on VH1, I believe, on a day(s) they also showed a doc about The Band,and also aired "The Last Waltz". Still brings a tear to my eye when Phil discusses the process of writing "Box Of Rain" with Hunter. But a pretty good doc all-in-all. Fare thee well.
